RUMOR: Die Räuber mit Bill und Tom Kaulitz!

For a long time fans were puzzling over the new project of Bill and Tom. But now the waiting is over. The German producer Christoph Gampl published a detailed script about the movie “Die Räuber” (The Robbers) two weeks ago.

The drama “Die Räuber” from Friedrich Schiller will be implemented into an animation but also with real scenes with Bill and Tom in the leading parts.
Here’s a summary of the movie’s content:
„In crisis-ridden Germany of 2039 the government responds to the radicalization of the different political sides with a successive development of the surveillance society in dimensions of Orwell (-> TH-Wonderland: known from the “Animal Farm”).

Maximilian von Moor (age: 54), commish and government official experiences the growing chaos and disruption of society to the point of his own family. While his beloved son Karl (age: 21) becomes an icon of resistance to the reigning class, his other son Franz (age: 21) begins to long for power. Karl, supported by his father is leading an intransigent regime in the underground. His fiancée, Amalia, is on his side, despite all the propaganda against the insurgents and resists the advances of Franz.

The near-rioting circumstances are going to escalate. Besides the aging commish dies under mysterious instances. With his son Franz on their side the government is activating their powers. When Karl finds out that his father is still alive, caught by Franz in a brig, he gives orders to attack the city and take vengeance on his brother. It’s coming to a fight without winners, in which only the heavenly forces will gain a tragic victory.”

Bill is going to play the leading part of “Franz von Moor” while Tom is playing “Karl von Moor”. About the collaboration with Bill and Tom Christoph Gampl wrote:
“I was searching long, was talking to innumerous casting agents, was sifting show reels which I refused over and over again. I wanted young actors, around twenty […]. In a magazine about the topic “twins” I read an interview with Bill and Tom Kaulitz and discovered some parallels […] the brothers were meant for this movie […] Right know they’re practicing for their roles to be professional.”

There are already first impressions of the artwork from the movie which are reminiscent of "Humanoid" and also of the way how the twins are looking currently. As there is for now no officially confirmation from Bill and Tom and also there's no expect when the movie will release, regard these news as a rumor.

Update: A news article from Mainpost from August 2010 is also telling, that Gampl is planning the material for the movie for about one and a half year. August 2010 trailer, virtual scenes and screenplays were developed. The budget for the movie is about 5 Million Euro, the shooting programme will begin in autumn 2011.
